  Well, I think it's generally a good thing to be able to determine
memory usage from within the mud, especially if you have admins/coders
without shell access, and if you have memory restriction on your mud
account (thus show memory tells you when a reboot is due). It also
shows you whether you curently have a memory leak in code or not. I'd
also prefer a portable way to do it - but obviously there is none
(is there?). Ideas anyone?
